Why are the modification dates set to when files were modified by developers and not when they were modified in Debian?
I'm using Debian 9.1 with KDE and with the help of tripwire I noticed some files with the Modify Time set to a time when I wasn't even home and had my encrypted computer shut off completely. Hence I guess that these modification dates are not the dates when the files were modified on my computer but when they were modified by the developers.
Why is that? Why aren't the modification dates set to the date when the update was done? Isn't that the date they were modified on the local machine? If I got something wrong (e.g. that not being the modification-date of developers) I'll edit my question.
The files are:
/lib/systemd/system/tor.service /lib/systemd/system/tor@.service /email@example.com /lib/systemd/system-generators/tor-generator /usr/sbin/tor /usr/sbin/tor-instance-create
